A team from the European Mathematical Society presents "mathematical busking" at the occasion of the conference ESOF 2014 : Mathematics in the streets of Copenhagen.

The World Cup 2014 will start soon in Brazil. Read here Franka Miriam Brueckler's article on "Mathematical Preparations for the World Cup 2014."

She also has collected interesting information concerned with the use of statistical methods to predict the outcomes of football matches.

The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters has decided to award the Abel Prize for 2014 to Yakov G. Sinai (78) of Princeton University, USA, and the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences.

On July 26, 1903, Kurt Mahler was born in Krefeld (Germany). He did important work in number theory and algebra, and in analysis and geometry as well. His best-known result is the Mahler classification of complex numbers. Mahler died on February 25, 1988, in Canberra (Australia). More information can be found here.

**Mathematical trees growing in chemistry**

Most of the mathematical disciplines evolved either from physical problems or for pure mathematical reasons. Chemistry as a motivator for developing a mathematical theory is, at least for more general theories, a very rare case. Graph theory is an exception.
